Lorna Whiston superstars to perform at prestigious charity
A group of students between the ages 5-11 years old from Lorna Whiston Schools was chosen to perform in a choir alongside the TNT Boys at the President’s Star Charity. Over the last couple of weeks, they have been hard at work, recording and rehearsing for the big night!
The President’s Star Charity is one of Singapore’s biggest, annual national fundraising events. Donations raised from the event will benefit 59 nominated charities supported by the President's Challenge. The event, now on its 25th year was held on Sunday night (14 October), carried the theme of inclusion, with a slew of performances from various artists in Asia – including a special appearance by President Halimah Yacob, who performed with her husband, Mr Mohamed Abdullah Alhabshee, in a special closing song together with The Purple Symphony, Singapore’s largest inclusive orchestra.
The Lorna Whiston Speech and Drama programmes are designed to develop young learners' confidence and communication skills. This prepares them not just to perform well within the confines of the classroom but also helps them develop their public speaking skills in a true-to-life environment and perform on a stage like pros.
This year’s President’s Star Charity raised a record total of S$8.3 million, the highest amount raised for the annual event.
We can’t be prouder of our little superstars, teachers, and staff who have worked tirelessly to make this happen from the audition to the rehearsals and the actual performance.
